The York College women's soccer team earned a pair of national statistical championships in NCAA Division III.

The Spartans also had three categories where they placed second overall.

The Spartans earned a team championship in save percentage (.942) during the 2012 season. The defense ranked second in goals-against average (0.304 goals per game) and shutout percentage (83.3 percent). The Spartans registered 15 shutouts in 18 games.

Sophomore goalie Melanie Glessner earned a national statistical championship for save percentage (.941) for the season. Glessner recorded 95 saves while she allowed just six goals in 1,732 minutes. Glessner also finished second in the nation in goals-against average (0.31).

"Melanie and our defenders all played fantastic this year," York College head coach Vicki Sterner said. "We had a strong group that played together and were very consistent all season. I am looking forward to having a large core of returning defenders for 2013. If we can do a better job of finishing in the offensive third, we have a chance to have a great fall."

The Spartan defense was anchored by junior All-Capital Athletic Conference selection Dale Mason.
